By Jyoti Atul Bhatt
Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. About the Book: Krishna’s empyrean flute call made my emotions dance to His tunes resulting in a soulful outpouring of my heart to Him! This devotional anthology of fifty-four poems reflects my aspirations, dilemmas, struggles and experiences of my spiritual journey. Some of them express the throbbing of my heart for Krishna and some voice my distressing doubts that overwhelmed my thoughts. Some glorify His endless qualities and in some I question Him on the enigmas of life. Some deal with deeper spiritual insights and some on the philosophy of love. I share these poems publicly with the hope that these ambrosial oblations to Krishna might help to inspire spiritual seekers or bestow anyone who reads them the joy of feeling deeply connected with their own Maker, addressing Him by any name. I wish to humbly convey to my readers the simple message of Divine Love.
